[image]Bathymetry of the Los Angeles Margin - USGS Pacific Sea-Floor Mapping Project
The complex rugged nature of the continental margin off the coast of Los Angeles, CA is revealed in this visualization of coastal bathymetry. The USGS Pacific Seafloor Mapping Project uses state-of-the-art high resolution digital multibeam sonar systems to systematically map the sea floor. This image is a composite of data from the 1996, 1998, and 1999 surveys. The two types of data collected include bathymetry (sea-floor depth) and backscatter (sonar echo brightness data that can provide insigh...

Several large fires were burning in southern California in late October 2003. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite captured this image of the Los Angeles region on October 23, 2003, and both the Grand Prix Fire (north of center) and the Roblar 2 Fire (south of center) are obvious in the image. Each of the fires is producing a large smoke plume. The large grayish patch along the coast of California in the upper left quadrant of the image is Los Angeles.T...

[image]Fires and smoke in southern California - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
Thick smoke blankets the Southern California coastline as multiple brush fires continue to burn near Los Angeles and San Diego. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensor on the Terra satellite detected three major clusters of fires, marked with red boxes, on October 28, 2003. Top are the Piru, Simi Incident, and Verdale Fires. Firefighters have nearly contained the Verdale Fire, but strong winds, intense flames, and rough terrain have made it difficult to check the Piru an...
